Using the puppet module in the Bluefruit Playground App, you can create the coolest virtual puppet show ever. Learn how to control the puppet, add a green screen, then record your performance.

The Circuit Playground Bluefruit (CBP) controls the orientation, mouth and other features of the puppet over Bluetooth.

Additionally, this guide walks through how to use the "green screen" mode along with video software to have more control over how you film your puppetry.

Here's a demo of what you can unleash with the hottest new digital puppet technology. 

This app currently works with iPhone only. Android is anticipated, but no release date is set at this time.
